Intel did put a small spotlight on its upcoming 14th Gen Core "Raptor Lake Refresh" processor series at last week's Innovation event. This very brief aspect of their presentation has received only minor press coverage (in retrospect) since Team Blue did not do a great deal to publicize their "next-gen" release. In a pre-keynote segment on the second day of proceedings, an on-the-floor demonstration focused on AI-related virtual production methods. Craig Raymond, a Team Blue Technologist, showcased a workstation rig that deals with "meta-human" avatar plug-in for Unreal Engine.

Raymond pointed to a PC tower positioned under the work desk and introduced it as "running on our Raptor Lake Refresh right here," he continued: "so, we're showing off some of our brand new hardware for the first time, that is pre-launch, so we're giving everyone a first peek on what that really looks like." A grand total of 12 seconds was dedicated to 14th Gen Core during the second day livestream. They quickly moved onto previewing a Thunderbolt 5-equipped laptop that sat in the demo room. Intel is likely lining up a proper reveal of Raptor Lake Refresh SKUs closer to the expected October 17 launch of higher-end K and KF variants.

Thanks goes to VideoCardz for finding a needle in a haystack.

the reason they only spent 12 seconds on it was so that the viewers wouldn't realize that this "refresh" only offers yet another miniscule 2-3% performance improvement, but will cost considerably more than it's predecessor and generate even more heat than before.....

Showcasing another future chip hidden under the desk? Must have a dice pot hidden under there again too.

It's all in the Title really, Intel, innovation, refresh.

Ironic, but I think Intel were aware enough not to push it big at least.
